    Dude you're from Juniper. At least ask for L61 for your 2.5 YOE.

      Offer is good otherwise. Try Salesforce, HBO, Redfin and Zillow.

      You are getting less than what a fresh grad would make.

    Why pass? Why not negotiate? Say you appreciate the offer on the table, but you think 150 base, 30k equity per year and 30k signing bonus is a fair offer. The 15k additional sign ok is to compensate for missing 50% of review cycle if you join now. If they don’t negotiate, pass. You can make more money waiting tables in high end restaurants.

      TLead, talking some partial nonsense here. 135k is what they might have offered to *you*, also, highly likely it was for L61(recruiters usually don’t reveal the level). 150k is doable with competing offers(might be offered between 145k-150k).

      @Microsoft, it is very team dependent. FYI I worked at MS before. For most of the cases or even if you take average, 150k is a lot for Microsoft. Why do you think people here on blind complain. Forget about people on blind, I’ve got 3 offers from Microsoft in last 2 weeks from 3 teams. Azure Data & Intelligence, OneDrive Share Point and M365. MS couldn’t match Amazon, forget Amazon, they couldn’t even match Zillow. When I am taking I have data. I’m not saying you’re wrong. But I’ll talk about most of the cases. Take O(N) cases and not O(1)

      Again I am talking in terms of base. In terms of sign on bonus and stocks this is way less. New grads get 50k sign on bonus and 130k in stocks if they have competing offers. It may go up to 150k. And new grads stocks are vested over 3.5 years unlike experienced whose stocks are vested over 4 years.

      TLead, when you say 150k is not going to work in your previous post, you should have been clearer. OP needs to be provided with all the necessary data. And please don’t use O(*) notations; doesn’t really make sense. It’s all dependent on your negotations/interviews.

      My bad. I’m sorry for any confusion. When I meant 150k I meant base pay. Not TC. I apologize for confusion.

    That's a standard offer for SDE 1 from MS. They won't budge unless you show competing offers.
    You mentioned you have 2.5 years of experience. Is it in US?

    How much is your juniper Tc breakdown? Location?How much % increment? Just to let you know, msft has bonus = target % /2 and espp is not so good. Come here only if it is sizable increase. Which team will you be joining?
